The bad news? You turned 26 and got kicked off your parent’s plan. The good news? Health insurance is still way cheaper when you’re under 30.

Those under 30 can buy a special kind of health insurance plan that protects you from high medical costs and pays for things like annual check-ups. Often called “simple,” “basic,” or “catastrophic,” these plans have lower premiums and protect you from worst-case scenarios. Under these plans, you’ll get 3 doctors visits per year at no cost and free preventive benefits. Plus, all of our NY carriers offer free phone calls with doctors, too.

Remember, even though you might be young and carefree, life has a way of coming at us when we least expect it. Play it safe and make sure you’re covered – it could save you in the long run.
